The NBA season is in full swing, and there are plenty of betting opportunities. ESPN has a double-header Friday featuring the New Orleans Pelicans vs. the Dallas Mavericks (7:30 p.m. ET) followed by the Los Angeles Lakers hosting the Memphis Grizzlies (10 p.m. ET). Our analysts -- Doug Kezirian, Joe Fortenbaugh and Andre Snellings -- are here to give their best bets for Friday's lineup of games.

Friday's games

LA Clippers (-6.5, 228) at Chicago Bulls, 8 p.m. ET

Snellings: The Clippers are one of the strongest teams in the NBA when healthy, but Paul George has already been declared out for Friday's game with a toe injury.
